Forbes Says Micheal Jackson Made $75M In 2017



According To Forbes Dead Pop Star Micheal Jackson Has Earned a whopping $75M this year 2017.

The King of Pop earned $75 million pretax over the past year, landing him the No. 1 spot on our Halloween-spooky list of highest-paid dead celebrities. Here’s a deeper look inside the numbers.

In 2016 the King of Pop clocked $825 million—the highest annual total for any entertainer dead or alive—mostly from the sale of his half of the Sony/ATV catalogue. Despite earning less than one-tenth that sum this year, he easily leads our list thanks to a Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas, a stake in the EMI publishing catalogue and continued interest in his own music, most notably new album Scream.

Jackson’s $75 million tally this year still places him on par with the seventeenth-best-paid living entertainer, Bruce Springsteen. The King of Pop, now also solidifying his status as the King of Halloween, has earned over $3 billion pretax during his career–before and after his death–and closer to $4 billion when adjusting for inflation
